A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
